Calibrate, Inc. Launches User Qualification Clinic


12/20/2010 2:57:57 PM

Research Triangle Park, NC, December 20, 2010 – Calibrate, Inc., a leading provider of on-site and mail-in pipette calibration and repair services, today announced the launch of its User Qualification Clinic program. The program is designed to meet client needs for staff training in pipetting technique with the goal of reducing pipette-related errors and improving both the quality and efficiency of laboratory operations. Featuring original content, expert instruction and personalized attention, the program marks the next step towards Calibrate's goal of providing a full range of pipette-related services.

Calibrate will host half-day clinics with two distinct sessions. Session One's presentation provides the framework for understanding and minimizing sources of error in pipetting, with topics ranging from choosing the right pipette for each job to controlling environmental influences when you're at the bench. Session Two provides hands-on instruction in pipettor functionality and pipetting technique before participants go through our state-of-the-art proficiency testing program. Calibrate works with each participant to improve technique until they get passable results, at which point they earn their certificate of User Qualification.

"Successful lab professionals are always aware of the latest industry trends and opportunities for advancing their career," said Ann Lenhardt, COO and Director of Quality Assurance at Calibrate, Inc. "User Qualification Clinic participants will walk away with more in-depth knowledge and enhanced technical skills, and their lab work will benefit from it. Calibrate is committed to fulfilling the needs of pipette users and providing an avenue for engaged learning— this educational program demonstrates that."

Reservations for the User Qualification Clinic may be made by calling Calibrate's Customer Service Line at 919-240-4089 or toll free at 800-253-7064. Clinics can accommodate up to 30 attendees and can be conducted on-site at customer facilities nationwide throughout the year.
